“He Towered Over Me”: 10th Woman Accuses New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of Sexual Misconduct

HeadlineMar 30, 2021

Here in New York, a 10th woman has accused Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual misconduct. Sherry Vill says Cuomo made unwanted physical advances toward her while the two interacted in 2017. Vill met Cuomo while he toured her neighborhood in Rochester after a flood. Vill says Cuomo approached her at her home, took her hand and pulled her to him. Cuomo then leaned down over her and kissed both her cheeks. Vill described their interaction as “overtly sexual” and disrespectful to her husband and son, who were both present. Vill shared her experience during a virtual press conference yesterday.

Sherry Vill: “I felt he was acting in a highly flirtatious and inappropriate manner, especially in front of my family and neighbors. He is almost six feet tall. I’m approximately five feet tall. He towered over me. There was nothing I could do.”
